1 Codesign: The World Of Practice D. Sreenivasa Rao Senior Manager, System Level Integration Group Analog Devices Inc. May 2007

2 Analog Devices Inc. ADI is focused on high-end signal processing chips and the markets that need them Markets Served Product portfolio includes: Analog IC s, ASSP s (73%) DSP s, Ex. Blackfin (22%) MEMS products (5%) Basic Stats: FY 06 revenues $2.65B Gross margins usually upwards of 60% Communications PC Market Industrial Consumer Electronics Increasing focus is on CE, whose market characteristics are challenging: Narrow windows Primary Competitors are: Short product lifetimes Texas Instruments, Broadcom, Linear Tech, Maxim, STMicro High R&D/Manf. costs 2

3 Evolution of Chip Designs Homogeneous, Analog or digital Pwr Mgmt Converters (multiple) Functional Analog Digital Complexity Complexity Process CPU Mem. A/MS Periphs. A or D 3

4 SoC s, Or Where We Do Co-Design Project Planning Data Management System Algorithmic Design SoC Architectural Design Early Validation of SoC Software Partition Software Design Hardware Partition HW Design: Block-based (digital or analog) HW Integration Verification, Integrity testing System Integration/Verification System-level Abstractions and SW IP Module Derivatives IP Qualification IP IP Library (Internal, External IP) IP) 4

5 The Torturous World of Co-Design For modeling and verifying complex hardware designs, solutions are slowly but surely becoming available Early languages were imperfect for modeling and for simulation Our path has taken us (and is still) through PSL, SVA, BSV, SysV, etc. EDA is (finally) converging on SystemC as the language of choice Tool support is not mature yet for mainstream usage Abstraction bridges are still lacking ie., the ability to model untimed testbenches and combine them with timed RTL models We routinely develop C models of algorithmic blocks and use them for testing of the developed RTL 5

6 The Torturous World of Co-Design (Cont d) Another aspect of co-design is hardware design at higher levels of abstraction Usage of C or SystemC is popular, although other languages exist There are a host of solutions available now Direct synthesis from C is most preferable (one time development of algorithmic code), but existing tools work only for datapaths Two big methodology holes: Algorithmic verification capabilities C-to-RTL validation A key advantage is architectural exploration, for which other, graphical solutions are also appropriate 6

7 Our Vision: Develop Apps-Specific Platforms Several end-use systems share similar core sub-systems Ex. A micro-controller with common peripherals, memory, bus management, and bridges A platform is simply an abstraction that enables this level of sharing An architectural framework or family, consisting of a set of hardware blocks wrapped around a standard bus and other infrastructure, that supports rapid embedding into a larger chip for quick product development A platform should be accompanied by a set of methods/methodologies to support customization and integration The advantages of a platform include increased design productivity, higher reliability and first silicon success, as well as lower manufacturing costs Chip Level Product1 Product1 (ex. (ex. comms) comms) Product2 Product2 (ex. (ex. media) media) etc etc 7 Subsystem level Component level Processor Centric Platform Q Processor Centric Platform R Apps-specific Peripherals, or Periph Sub-system Processor Sys. Periphs Connectivity IO pads Analog IP Memory

8 . And Prototype them for Software Development Platforms are meant to accelerate development of key apps software for market segments or classes In addition, platforms make it easy for us explore design alternatives Accurate, flexible, and scalable models of platform hardware must be easily available Platform abstraction must handle new or partly-defined functions It must avoid double modeling once in HW and once in SW Creating software models of platforms is more than cobbling together the individuals C models or BFM s The model must fully mirror the functionality of the embedded system RTL simulation is too slow, and Instruction Set Simulation doesn t scale well for complex SW The platform must be hybrid, allowing some portions at implementation level (ASIC or FPGA), some as VM s, some as C models, some cycle-accurate, some cycle-approximate, etc. The methodology of platform creation and usage are keys to success 8
